COMMENT:

Communication and social interaction are difficulties faced by persons with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Therefore, can they benefit from interactive learning environments? Research has provided some evidence in this regard. Mason et al. (2014) found that communicative interactions of students with ASD increased after the implementation of peer-mediated social skills programs in informal contexts of interaction. Carter et al. (2016) analyzed peer support arrangements for students with ASD in high school and found that these students increased their social interactions with peers, while academic engagement was increased or maintained for most of the students. Ferguson et al. (2020) analyzed language production and exposure to language in preschool students with ASD in different educational settings and found that children in inclusive classrooms received more verbal input from peers and produced more speech as compared to students in autism-only classrooms or mixed disability classrooms. Therefore, according to research, students with ASD can benefit from inclusive interactive learning environments and receive positive impacts precisely in those areas in which they have the most difficulties: social interaction and communication. Research also suggests the importance of designing and providing the necessary supports, and especially considering the implementation of peer support strategies.

Investigaciones anteriores muestran una brecha entre la identificación de prácticas basadas en evidencia para niños con trastorno del espectro autista y la adopción de esas PBE por parte de los maestros de aula. Sin embargo, pocos estudios han examinado el uso de la PBE en las aulas de preescolar.

El trastorno espectro autismo (TEA) como ya sabemos puede reflejar tener dificultades para la comunicación e interacción social, de aquí que el lenguaje no siempre será la mejor forma para comunicarse. Por esta razón la educación juega un gran papel, porque no hay una cura conocida para este trastorno, sino que hay terapias para mejorarlo. 

Hay un artículo de investigación, que realiza un experimento para evaluar y mejorar el método para aumentar el conocimiento -la heurística de Nielsen- en los niños/as con TEA, donde nos dice que los sistemas interactivos para estas personas se centran en el tiempo real y de manera personalizada a cada individuo, al comprender su comportamiento. También comenta que en actualidad se ha demostrado que las aplicaciones de los sistemas interactivos cambian la vida de los TEA, ya que nos dan resultados positivos como interactuar, socializar, comunicarse y aprender de manera novedosa.
